FILM 4: MY BIG FAT GREEK WEDDING - 30 minutes
The problem is that I've been completely shell-shocked by by the triple barrage of this morning, I'm a bit worried that I've become desensitised to films that aren't terrible.
This is OK so far, although I'm a bit grumpy and confused about how the main character turned from a shy frump to a happenin' girl about town in the space of 5 minutes. I suppose that most films would take 2 hours to get through what his film did in 5 minutes, but even so, grumble grumble characterisation grumble.
I can't help but notice that the man in the film is one of Carrie Bradshaw's ex-boyfriends in Sex And The City. Just when I thought I was out, they pull me back in.
Tell you what though, something else I've noticed is that in ALL romantic comedies ever made ever, when your main woman gets a make-over, she must immediately walk into something and fall over.
If you want a picture of the future, imagine women, falling over on the cover of Heat magazine, forever.
